J. M. Smallheer you are an excellent reader.

***SPOILER ALERT***PLEASE DON'T READ IF YOU LIKE, LIKE ME, TO FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF THE CONTENTS AND ENDING ON YOUR OWN, JUST LIKE ME. :-\.

It is a good romance and thriller, and vivid descriptions of main characters and place the enchanting slower paced parts of the book. irritaring was the author's overt and way too long,pages at times, presumptuous psychoanalyzing even in the midst of the dramatic and thrilling parts.

...well let me just say this: it could have been at least half "oriental" damsel in distress, but no: the 19th, early 20th century European exceptionalism like today's stupid, destructive, deadly and arrogant US exceptionalism...but no,she just had to be a 100% caucasian...big let down for me and i am sure others

Subject: Very exciting book
A gently raised young lady of 18 escapes from her Turkish home during a Masque Ball and meets a dashing young adventurer (perhaps a Jones wannabe?) from America who decides that he adores her beauty from first moment, tho she is dressed in traditional Turkish head-to-toe garb and he can only see the sparkle in her eyes. She, although half French, has been raised in the sequestered confines of her home. She had always expected to marry only for love, yet her father gives her away to an older man to settle a score. He had accepted that she was lost to him, until he learns a startling secret about her past that makes him risk all in saving this young beautiful woman. An absorbing story that I enjoyed very much. The reader also did a very nice job.
